    Co-worker brought in fresh little peppers green & red. I actually tried them without cooking them. Pretty ok.

    This is a great idea.. I even have been doing this with broccoli too. The peppers are so good and if you need a dip hummus is a good one. I also love to chop up an assortment of veggies for egg scrambles (frittatas) so having them sliced and on hand makes prep so easy. Also, roasting peppers and onions with a drizzle of olive oil is super yummy. They carmelize and are super sweet. emoticon

    Really like this idea. I had just started doing that this week. emoticon

    Thank you so much for the suggestion. I am going to start doing this because I usually wind up throwing away some of the veggies I buy. I figure if I prepare them as soon as I get them, I am more apt to use them.
